The nose is complex, slightly spicy and accompanied by red fruits. In the mouth it is fresh, mineral and with soft and silky tannins. A wine that perfectly expresses the north-eastern border of the district: complexity comes from the north and freshness and elegance from the woods of the east. It is a wine that can be drunk with joy and that enchants with its complexity and simplicity.

Cherry sauce, plums, sweet lavender and hints of geranium rise from the 2014 Etna Rosso Martinella. It boasts silky textures that fill the palate with fleshy red fruits, balanced by brisk acids and minerals. A tart twang of sour citrus and hints of grippy tannins linger as this finishes classically dry yet fresh. The Martinella is really quite nice and, while lightly structured, completely ready to drink. This is a blend of 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio.

Made with 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio, this opens with aromas of French oak, toasted hazelnut and underbrush. On the palate, close-grained, not very persistent yet drying tannins support dried cherry, bitter almond and a hint of coffee bean. Drink sooner rather than later.

Smoke and dried dill notes accent tangy wild cherry and white raspberry fruit flavors in this zesty, medium-bodied red. Turns chewy on the spiced finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made, 100 cases imported.
